Crepe with Sweet Plantain & Chantilly Cream*

Food was amazing. I highly recommended the mole dish and the Mexican hot chocolate.
I had the special last night, spicy gambarones. And it was amazing. The shrimp were cooked perfectly, sauce was slightly spicy and tangy. It was served on a bed of rice encircled by plaintains. I highly recommend this restaurant and this dish.
Quick intimate service in a relaxed setting with good, fresh food
Magical restaurant!!! Thank you, again!
THE best Mexican restaurant on Staten Island. 10 out of 5 stars 😁
Appetizers to dessert was fabulous. Loved the crab tostada suggested by the waitress for an appetizer. Best guacamole.
Service is wonderful!
Drinks were great!
We were pleased with the Restaurant Week menu. There were ample choices and everything we ordered was tasty. I especially liked the tortilla soup.
Delicious food as well as attentive service. Very good experience overall.
A fabulous dining experience once again
We ate in the garden
Mole was outstanding
Drinks were great
Everything was delicious. Staff is very friendly. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for fresh, delicious Mexican food.
The only regret I have about Maizal is how long it took me to get there. What a cute little place with an adorable backyard patio. The servers were all very kind and attentive and the food was outstanding. The plantain stuffed with shrimp and avocado was absolutely delicious and the crab meat tostada special tasted like the freshest crab cake I've ever eaten. We both loved our entrees as well, I had shrimp with rice for dinner - absolutely delicious tomatillos with some plantain for sweetness underneath the rice, not overly seasoned and the fresh ingredients provided a lot of the flavor. The drinks were delicious as well, had the tropical twist which I will try and recreate myself and the margarita special. Finished with some churros for dessert but had to bring them home because we were stuffed. Loved the vibe of the patio, the food and the service, 10/10 for sure.
Great food. Excellent service. Drinks are delicious. Definitely recommend this place to everyone.
Good food, good outdoor ambience. Loved the stuffed sweet plantains. The brunch menu had a good variety. We were a little late for our reservation but we called in early and they accommodated our request and seated us in the backyard which had a good ambience. Although, it did get humid after sometime and the fans really weren’t much help. But other than that, the staff was really welcoming and served us well. I’d highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy good food!
This restaurant is fabulous and great for all occasions. The food is authentic Mexican and the service is great. The cocktails and sangria make every meal feel festive. Both the inside and outside spaces are beautiful so you can dine where you feel most comfortable. Their mole is prepared with care and is second to none. The tres leches cake was delicious. This is a happy place- smiles all around as people enjoyed settling in to enjoy their dinners and cocktails. The restaurant is an easy car ride from the ferry and is a Staten Island gem.
We love Maizals!!
Service is always on point, as well as the food & drinks. I live around the corner and I'm treated like family we are there so often. Much better than Sophia's across the street. Maizal blows them out of the water!
Went for Brunch and food and drinks were excellent. One of my favorite places to dine.
Service was excellent.
Love sitting outside on their patio area. Very comfortable and great atmosphere! The Maizal family is ALWAYS welcoming and friendly!! Greated immediately, seated and water and drink order taken right away. Enjoyed the mescal margs w/ chili rim, great guac and rstd cauliflower special!! Chorizo burrito, shrimp tacos and shrm/ spin quesadilla...FRESH, HOT & great flavor! One of my favorites!!
I have been going here since their opening; I have never been disappointed with anything. Food is amazing, drinks are great and the weekend brunch is also great.
Outstanding as always!

Food was great and social distancing was honored indoors.
Love, love, love Maizal! Been coming here for years and it is always exceptional! The staff is fantastic too!
Awesome as usual.
Lovely restaurant. Food was delicious. Sweet ambiance. Servers met our every need. We experienced a bit of noise but we were seated under a speaker playing Latin music. If you prefer quiet ask to sit away from the music. The restaurant was lively. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. I would definitely suggest a reservation. There’s garden seating outside.
Great food! Great people! And the best very good food.
Excellent customer service, drinks and food. A little pricey, but the quality was great!

The food and service was exceptional.
Sat outside after being turned down to sitting at the table by the window, but it was a beautiful night, so I didn't mind.
Happy hour all day on Thursdays...yes!! Food was delicious! Service was great!! Not our first time there, certainly not the last.
I made a reservation using open table the morning of. The option was listed for 6:15 pm outdoor dining. It had been raining all day, but I’ve seen photos and heard from others that the outdoor area was well-covered. I also presumed that the restaurant would not be offering outdoor seating that particular day if the rain was an issue. I arrived 5 minutes early, was told they were a little behind, so I waited out front. After 20 minutes, I was told “we have a problem we didn’t expect the rain and the table we were going to seat you at isn’t covered.” But they politely said they were checking for cancellations. A few minutes later another employee came out and said “you called too late and now it’s raining,” shrugged, and pointed at the sky. I clarified that I did not call, I in fact utilized the open table app service, instead the employee just repeated that I called too late. I understand it was a busy day for this restaurant, but I do not think this was handled properly. I live in the area and have heard many great reviews. I can assure you I will not attempt to dine at this restaurant again. Thank you.
The food and the atmosphere are excellent. Staff members are extremely courteous.
